Jim Thomas, of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, reports the Dallas Cowboys have signed free agent TE Jerome Collins (Rams) to their practice squad.

# 48 Jerome Collins    
Position: TE
Height: 6-4
Weight: 270
Born: 04/18/1982
College: Notre Dame
NFL Experience: 2

Here's an article about him being drafted. Key part:

Collins played various positions at Notre Dame after being recruited by Bob Davie as a wide receiver out of high school. Collins started at wide receiver before being moved around with stops at linebacker and defensive before settling in at tight end. Despite collecting only six catches for 67 yards with a long of 21 yards in his entire Notre Dame career, Collins moved up draft boards with a strong showing at the Combine... with 40 times ranging between 4.65 and 4.72.
